Ah, but what you got was a BWM, not a Scorpion, as I understand... like Daniel's old RIB: http://grayswish.rib.net/technical.htm - which I believe now has a new home in Scotland.

Agreed, but in true Scorpion fashion they had posh seats and consoles and came with a Scorpion price tag to boot!

Must admit that the seating arrangement was what first impressed me, console with single jockey and then two jockeys side by side and plenty of stainless grab handles.

Interesting comments

I would say the main downfall of grayswish was seating. The "double" jockey was too low and far from ideal for the 2nd person on it.
